“Excellent Chinese Food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

My husband and I ate at Brandy Ho's on the recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed. While the restaurant was not very busy when we walked in for lunch, it quickly filled up. As soon as we sat down, we were given a pot of hot tea - which was wonderful. My husband ordered the General's Chicken and I ordered the Si Foo Chicken. Both were FANTASTIC!!! Neither of us left anything for later. The food had outstanding flavor and it tasted fresh and clean. Even if you are not a fan of Chinese food, I would recommend Brandy Ho's. You will not walk away disappointed.

“Terrific Hunan Food!”
Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

Both my boss and the concierge recommended this restaurant when my husband and I were looking for a great Chinese restaurant in SF. And Brandy Ho's didn't disappoint! It's a very casual restaurant at the edge of Chinatown with fantastic food and very fast and attentive service! You must try the onion cake! The steamed dumplings were also very good. Brandy Ho's is known for authentic smoked Hunan food. I ordered the smoked chicken and the waitress warned me that the smoky flavor is very strong. The chicken was good but definitely for those who love an intense smoky flavor. It was a little strong for me and my husband. My husband ordered a beef curry dish which was outstanding! I like mild and my husband likes insanely spicy but they were able to make everything mild and put hot sauces on the side. I highly recommend this restaurant!

“Great Hunan food”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

This place was seriously good. Basic decor, very friendly manager and knockout food. Would steer away from the smoked things on the menu, but everything else was great.

Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

This place has perhaps the BEST hot & sour soup we've ever had! And the dumplings are phenomenal...great spice/heat to everything! And great prices...definitely worth a visit!
